Message From SuperBottoms

Daycares have become very popular in India in the past one or two decades, as most families these days are nuclear families, and both parents are generally working parents. Although many daycares start accepting babies as young as six months old so that working mothers can return to their jobs after their maternity break, many parents refer to starting daycare only once the child communicates a little. This ensures the child's safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, it makes tasks like potty training or self-feeding easier for your children to develop independence.

Many questions must be considered when considering putting your child in daycare. Suppose you have been exclusively cloth diapering your baby or are fed up with the expenses of disposable diapers and want to move to cloth diapers. In that case, diapering can be one of those concerns you would need to look into. This article by SuperBottoms will help you explore how you can continue to use cloth diapers exclusively while your baby is in daycare. We will also help you with some tips that can help potty train your baby sooner and with ease, taking the daycare staff on board. So, read on!

Benefits Of Using Cloth Diapers in The Daycare

Here are the top 5 reasons why cloth diapers/reusable cloth diapers are an excellent choice for your baby when they start to go to daycare.

1. Eco-Friendly – No matter where your baby is – at home, travelling, or daycare- sustainability is a choice you must make to ensure less waste generation and fewer disposable diapers end up in landfills. Thus, cloth diapers and daycare are a great combination!

2. Saves you the money – With the additional cost of daycare and the anticipated bouts of cold and cough due to exposure to germa and other sick children, the expenses increase when your baby starts with daycare. Cloth diapers can help you reduce the cost and save some money.

3. Reduces Rashes – Cloth diapers can help you avoid any nasty rashes caused by disposable diapers or leaving the diapers for too long in case the daycare staff forgets to change the baby's diapers.

4. Better Fit – Reusable cloth diapers are a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to diapering. SuperBottoms UNO Cloth Diaper can fit babies from 7 KG to 17 KG just by adjusting the snaps. Thus, they last longer and are a better choice for the daycare staff to simply put them on the baby without thinking about size.

5. Potty Training Becomes Easy – Disposable diapers are made super-absorbent using chemicals that do not let the baby feel the moisture against the skin. Thus babies never realise the icky feeling of peeing and pooping in diapers. This can delay the potty training for babies. With Padded Underwear, your baby will not make a mess outside but will feel the moisture against the skin and thus will start communicating the urge to pee or poop in the toilet. This will make the potty training process easier and faster for the caregiver at the daycare.

Selecting The Right Diapers For Daycare

A combination of SuperBottoms UNO and Padded Underwear is ideal for your baby at the daycare. While your baby is taking a nap, peaceful sleep is essential. Thus, using SuperBottoms UNO, which can absorb for up to 8 hours, is the ideal choice. But if your baby has already pooped for the day and is awake and playing, they can be put in a Padded Underwear. This will speed up the toilet training process as well. Thus, a combination of 2 SuperBottoms UNO and 4 – 5 Padded Underwear is ideal for being packed in their daycare bag and sent along.

Communicating With The Daycare Staff

If you want to continue exclusive cloth diapering in the daycare, getting the daycare staff onboard is crucial. Here are a few things you need to remember while communicating with the daycare staff for the continuity of cloth diapers.

1. Educating the daycare staff - Cloth diapers offer benefits like eco-friendliness and cost-effectiveness. Demonstrating the proper use and changing of cloth diapers on your baby to the daycare staff can help daycare staff understand the process. Sharing details about the types of cloth diapers being used and specific care instructions ensures effective diapering practices.

2. Clear Instructions - Provide a detailed guide for changing cloth diapers for your baby, outlining steps to secure various closures. Clarify the frequency of diaper changes and signs indicating a change is needed. If your baby needs diaper cream or ointments to be used with cloth diapers, ensure that you also demonstrate the use of those.

3. Answering Common Questions - Encourage daycare staff to communicate any questions or concerns regarding cloth diaper use to you. Offer solutions for common issues like leaks or fit problems that may occur. If you need help, ask other parents who have been in this situation and successfully potty trained their baby in the daycare from Parents Tribe by SuperBottoms.

Key Takeaways

1. There are numerous benefits for your baby's skin, your pocket and the environment of choosing to continue cloth diapers for your baby when they start going to daycare.

2. Choose a combination of SuperBottoms UNO and Padded Underwear for different diapering needs of your baby and ensure proper potty training.

3. Educate the daycare staff about cloth diapers so they can efficiently and effortlessly continue using cloth diapers for your baby.

Q1 – Will the daycare staff be able to handle the cloth diapers just like a disposable diaper?

Ans – Cloth diapers are as convenient and easy to use as disposable diapers are. You need to send diapers sized as per your baby's needs and demonstrate to the staff how to put the diaper on, remove the diaper and rinse the used diaper. Once they see the ease of use, they can easily use it.

Q2 – My daycare staff refuses to cloth diaper my baby because of the washing hassle. What can I do?

Ans – The daycare staff does not need to wash the diapers, as soiled diapers can be easily stored in a wet bag for many hours. Demonstrate to them how the poop needs to be removed from the diapers and the rinsed diapers can be put inside the wet bag. This will make them confident and encourage them to use cloth diapers instead of disposable diapers.

Q3 – How should I pack the cloth diapers for my baby's daycare bag?

Ans – Make sure you have two bags: one simple bag in which you will send the fresh diapers and change of clothes for your baby and one wet bag where the daycare staff can put the soiled diapers so that other things do not get soiled or catch the odour.
